Stranger, Indiana

We’re back! Sorta… The Pop Scavengers are still adjusting to flat-land-living, here in Indiana; however, our wanderlust and thirst for adventure remains intact! Truth told, our new home presents a bit of a challenge… Living in Fort Wayne is like living in a Cohen Brothers’ caper: “This place is a geographical oddity–two [hours] from everywhere!”…

The King James Edition

Amid all the chaos of packing for our big move, we couldn’t leave town without dedicating an official Pop Scavenger hunt to none other than the King, himself.

Long Live the (re)Boot!

Our Pop Scavenger adventures have already taken us to myriad interesting locations, on hunts for the unique and ubiquitous, alike–and, with luck, we’ve plenty more mischief, yet to come. Along the way, we’ve noticed something interesting–a common theme that seems to be threading its way through more than just our (Pop) scavenging experiences, but also…
